Residential Servicing Valuation
MIAC has insight into many different valuation methodologies that can create unique arbitrage opportunities for both buyers and sellers of servicing portfolios. Our professionals maintain a strong dialogue with many of the key individuals responsible for servicing valuations and acquisitions within their institution.
Commercial/Multifamily Servicing Valuation
All of the pricing and assumptions that MIAC uses in our MSR valuations are based on information obtained through actual market trades, industry surveys, and through our proprietary Generic Servicing Assets (GSAs™), a monthly virtual auction among active participants in the servicing marketplace on approximately 300 servicing asset classes. The MSR market pricing assumptions are used to generate the most appropriate cash flows and value them using the most common market pricing conventions. Valuations are performed at the loan level, or individual loans within a portfolio are classified and pooled into buckets of homogeneous characteristics such as note rate, product type, and the investor remittance schedule.
